Their journey began long ago, in a mystical land full of evil monsters, treacherous landscapes and menacing armies. Their goal was simple but noble — to find their beloved Earthend and look upon the legendary “IT.”
However, simplicity is not always without dire consequences, a lesson the Patapons quickly learned as they battled bravely against insurmountable odds and sacrificed themselves for their beloved Earthend…every fallen warrior honored as brick on the road to their ultimate glory.
Patapon 2 is the continuation of this epic tale, and here we find that the mighty warriors have sailed into the unknown in search of Earthend.
Their time at sea has taken its toll on their sanity, and as they stare into the abysmal eye of madness their ship is attacked by a gigantic sea creature, killing almost all. Now shipwrecked on a strange unknown land, a lone Patapon struggles to keep the secret of the drum alive…and only with your help, the Mighty One, will they succeed in finding their glory.
This new strange land is the home the Karmens, a strange masked warrior tribe who are not too keen on having the Patapons in their territory. They quickly take an offensive stance to these Patapon intruders.
Soon the Patapons learn that this unknown land is not so unknown after all. They quickly make camp in an old abandoned Patapon village where they begin to strategize their next move.
They must battle through ice storms and sand blizzards as well as bigger and evil-er monsters.
Indeed, it’s a daunting task that is set before the brave Patapons and their new Mighty Leader (that would be you). But that’s just the story…so what about gameplay?
First off, we added an easy mode for the rhythm impaired. In this mode, the game is extra forgiving for those that can’t simultaneously tap their feet and clap their hands so they too will be able to have fun and not throw their PSPs at the wall in frustration. For the rhythm prodigies out there, we’ve added a mode for you to challenge your inner metronome. And finally, for those that can keep a good beat but still fall one drumstick short of a drumline, there is a mode for us as well. Now there really is no excuse.
Second, we added new attacks and miracles (Juju). These will help you increase your attack strength and defense strategy. We’ll be diving into those in upcoming posts.
Third, we added a cool Patapon theme that you can download from the PlayStation Store. OK, that might not really help with your game skills, but it will be cool to have, and any Mighty One, such as yourself, would be foolish to do without…we’ll be releasing it this coming Thursday, April 9th.
It doesn’t end here my Pata-friends…more details to come.
